If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.

-- John Lennon

It was like being in the eye of a hurricane. You'd wake up in a concert and think, Wow, how did I get here?

-- John Lennon

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.

-- John Lennon

Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.

-- John Lennon

Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it.

-- John Lennon

My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.

-- John Lennon

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.

-- John Lennon

Possession isn't nine-tenths of the law. It's nine-tenths of the problem.

-- John Lennon

Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.

-- John Lennon

Surrealism had a great effect on me because then I realised that the imagery in my mind wasn't insanity. Surrealism to me is reality.

-- John Lennon

The basic thing nobody asks is why do people take drugs of any sort? Why do we have these accessories to normal living to live? I mean, is there something wrong with society that's making us so pressurized, that we cannot live without guarding ourselves against it?

-- John Lennon

The more I see the less I know for sure.

-- John Lennon

The worst drugs are as bad as anybody's told you. It's just a dumb trip, which I can't condemn people if they get into it, because one gets into it for one's own personal, social, emotional reasons. It's something to be avoided if one can help it.

-- John Lennon

There's nothing you can know that isn't known.

-- John Lennon

When you're drowning, you don't say 'I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,' you just scream.

-- John Lennon

If you want to dance with me." -Rock And Roll Music-Chuck Berry

eh, I don't know how much of this you can put in, or what to put in, but here are the opening lines to "Maggot Brain" by Funkadelic.

Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time

for y'all have knocked her up.

I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe

and I was not offended.

For I knew I had to rise above it all,

or drown in my own s***.

Stepped on a pop-top

Cut my heel had to cruise on back home

But there's booze in the blender

And soon it will render

That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
